Still up in the air as to whether it will get a second season

No it's 99% there won't be a second series. Ratings were low in Australia.

Quirky, different and a bit amusing, enough for me to continue with it. I'm a big fan of Shaun Micallef, particularly his The Micallef P(r)ogram(me), so was happy when I noticed that this was going to be on.

Watched all of series via other means, pretty good concept but got a bit samey, can understand why it would be hard to get a second series.

I liked the niece, very funny and attractive.

I watched todays episode Is it meant to funny and really bad?

Todays would have been good apart from the screaming wife with her fear of dogs

Was nice to see Sally from Home and Away. Last time I saw her she was about 9

Mildly enjoyable, but as a concept, completely unbelievable.

Channel 5's site says "Sorry, Mr & Mrs Murder isn't currently scheduled to be on any of our channels."

And this evening is just Columbo and NCIS repeats, so it's not as if they couldn't fit it into a packed schedule. I still want to know what they've done with "Castle" (again.)

I quite liked it. I've been enjoying the Murder Mystery Saturdays.

I thought it was an OK show.

I guess it has been pulled due to low ratings? But then they never really advertised it, and they probably weren't making any ad venue from it, considering they rarely had any commercials airing during the commercial breaks (just promos).

Seems a bit silly and a bit of a waste to schedule the show at 6pm Saturday's anyway.

I understand pulling it after one series, but to take it off air after only a few episodes, is pathetic. Shame on Channel 5 for not giving new shows a chance.

I agree. I very rarely watch Sat evening TV but I was really enjoying this show

Baled out after a few minutes of the second episode as I couldn't get my head round the concept. It's sillier than the "investigative pathology lab workers, actively interviewing suspects and solving cases."
I could just about accept the feature film "Cleaner."

Maybe that gave them the idea for a series?

Well, I emailed Channel 5 about this show's disappearance from the schedules a while ago, and eventually got this reply:

Unfortunately, this programme did not prove to be as popular as we had hoped in a Saturday evening time slot and has been temporarily removed. We are planning to resume broadcasting it later this year but no dates or times have been confirmed at the moment. We recommend keeping an eye on the television listings magazines or the TV Guide<http://www.channel5.com/schedule> on our website for updates.
So, if the above is to be believed, it might return later in the year. Pity it was pulled, as admittedly it wasn't great, but I did like its charm... and I'm a bit of a Micallef fan.

Wasn't it showed late afternoon? So really it didn't stand a chance of getting many viewers.

I was just getting into when it stopped

A friend in Australia said it didn't go down well there.

I hope it does come back and thanks for sharing the reply.

It's currently showing on 5USA on Sundays, not sure if they will broadcast the full series this time.
